Dan Harwood quietly just keeps adding to his resume.harwood
The longtime Magruder High School basketball coach passed another milestone last week when he won his 500th career game. Outside of Derwood (MD), his accomplishment drew little attention.
But it bears noting, even if most in the local prep basketball world remain focused on the schools in the WCAC.
When Gene Doane was a young man, he thought he might become an architect or an engineer.
“I always had an interest in designing things,” he once said.
Ultimately, he was diverted from such pursuits. Basketball was in his blood, so instead he became a coach – a builder of successful high school basketball programs, an architect of winning teams.
